|Gosselin took advantage of a rare start Sunday, going 3 for 5 with a double and an RBI in a 9-8 win over the Reds.

|Schoop hit his 17th home run in Sunday's win over Cleveland, surpassing his previous career high of 16 set in 2014.

|Garcia stayed hot with two hits and an RBI in Saturday's loss at Colorado.
Analysis: Garcia is riding a seven-game hitting streak and is batting .375 with a pair of homers over his last 14 games, though his RBI chances have been limited playing on the majors' lowest scoring team.
|7/24/2016||Tyler Anderson, Col, P|
|Anderson won his third consecutive start after allowing three runs and striking out six over six innings Saturday against Atlanta.
Analysis: The rookie now has five quality starts through his first eight major league outings and owns a very respectable 3.56 ERA. Anderson also has performed well at hitter-friendly Coors Field, where he's 3-1 with a 3.47 ERA in six starts.
|7/24/2016||Trevor Story, Col, SS|
|Story clubbed two more homers and finished 4 for 4 with a career-high five RBIs to lead the Rockies to Saturday's 8-4 win over Atlanta.

|7/24/2016||Drew Smyly, TB, P|
|Despite holding the A's to one run over six effective innings, Smyly's winless streak continued Saturday after the Rays blew a lead in the ninth to be dealt a 4-3 loss.

|Colome blew his first save chance of the season after allowing three runs on a pair of homers in the ninth inning of Saturday's 4-3 loss at Oakland.
Analysis: Colome, now 21 of 22 in save opportunities, is still having an excellent season, though he's slipped a bit of late. Over his last six appearances, the hard-throwing righty is 0-2 and given up six runs and three homers over 4 2/3 innings.
